Epiphone Deluxe Zephyr Regent circa 1947 – An interesting example of a Epiphone archtop from the 1940s. A 17 inch maple body with a hand carved spruce top and cutaway. The single replacement P90 pickup in the center position is coupled with a volume/tone control. VGC NC $1995.
Gibson L-50 late 30s – This is one you don’t see very often. A early version of the acoustic L-50 archtop when it was only less than 15 inches wide on the lower bout and had a round soundhole, instead of F-holes. Think old times blues, Robert Johnson-style. That’s the vibe it gives off. Hope to get this one on the sales floor very soon. VGC-, HSC $2195.
